STAMPtember Has Begun!

Hi everyone!

September means the end of my favorite time of year, summer. Normally I am down in the dumps when fall arrives, BUT thank goodness something else happens this month that makes it so much better! September means STAMPtember! 

It's an exciting time over on the Simon Says Stamp blog, with a month long party! There are a boat-load of new products that you will love! This fabulous new release includes stamps, stencils, dies, inks, sequins and more! It's a huge release and, in my opinion, Simon's best release EVER! You can check out all the new products here but I'm warning you, you'll want it ALL!

I was lucky enough to be asked, once again, to be a part of their blog hop, which is tomorrow! (Tuesday, Sept. 2nd.) I received some goodies to play with and I've been having a ball creating cards for the hop! 

Here are the goodies I've been playing with:

 I can't wait to share my cards with you, so be sure to stop by the Simon Says Stamp blog tomorrow to start the hop! ♥

I love that Christmas Tree Die. Reminds me of something you would see in Whoville. :) Great tip on using the white border for the inlaid die to make it stand out. I'll be using that for my cutouts! :)
